"Élevage in oak barrels. Very gentle sandalwood and crushed lovage aromas on the nose. Creamy breadth and a little bit cedary. Cardamom and white pepper providing a bit of a kick. Subtle greengage fruit and very very creamy texture that builds towards the finish"
Owner and winemaker Philippe Raimbault finds himself in the charmed position of owning top class vineyards that straddle both banks of the Loire River in Pouilly-Fumé and Coteaux du Giennois. His outstanding Sancerre’s are made from exceptional hand-picked fruit, grown on soils that date back 130 million years to the Jurassic period and that are perfect for producing supreme Sauvignon Blanc. In recognition of this fact, Raimbault has named his best Sancerre Apud Sariacum, the original name of the village of Sury-en-Vaux where his vineyards are situated.
